About alfalfa sprouts

Alfalfa sprouts are the young seedlings of the plant of the same name. The reason we use sprouts and not mature alfalfa plants is that the plant's leaves grow very bitter as they mature. But when the sprouts are harvested early, they can provide a healthy boost to your recipes.

These sprouts are described as having a mild, nutty taste. They also add a satisfying crunchy texture to dishes. Alfalfa sprouts can be identified by their white stems and small green leaves.

People have been using alfalfa sprouts for their health benefits for hundreds of years. Alfalfa is offered in several forms, including raw sprouts and supplements. This legume is sought-after for its rich content of minerals and vitamins.

Raw alfalfa sprouts generally only last for a few days, so it's better to buy them when you're going to eat them soon. Keep your alfalfa sprouts in the refrigerator, preferably in the crisper drawer. If your alfalfa sprouts start to get slimy or wilted, it's time to toss them out. If you want to avoid waste, you can use old alfalfa sprouts as fertilizer or throw them into a compost heap.

If you're storing alfalfa sprouts in your refrigerator, be sure to keep them separated from other food. Wash only the amount of sprouts you're planning on eating now. Washing your alfalfa sprouts before you store them can cause their shelf life to shorten. However, you can thoroughly dry your sprouts on paper towels after washing them if you don't want to keep them in your refrigerator unwashed.
